Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)


As a conclusion, concentrated research answers are formulated in the last chapter epitomising the outcomes of pursuing the research goals set at the beginning of this work. For this purpose, the essence of each precedent chapter is summarised briefly beforehand. Based on this, the research questions are answered afterwards, providing the major conclusions of this work. Inevitably, this starts off a dilating discussion of the studied subject in future research. Hence, the final section gives an outlook on potential areas for addressing new problems in the field of quantitative planning of container handling in automated yard blocks based on time information.
